Blog Past: Black Swans

February 14th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This is a from a series written in August 2004:

I realised that these two words capture the essence of the dream of every entrepreneur. So, I decided to dig deeper to understand about black swan events. This column shares my learning and discusses the possible opportunity for a black swan in the technology industry in the coming years. After all, somewhere the next Google is being born even as we speak. We don’t know where, and we don’t know who. So, why cannot it be us? Why cannot one of us spark the next black swan event?

    Your references to “Black Swan” events must actually be “positive black swan events”.

    Not a major point, but since Taleb meant it that way, we shd probably call it that way.
